May is stroke awareness month. This week it’s been lots of dizziness, shunt pain and the occasional pain behind my eyes. The eye pain is mostly behind my right eye, where I had double vision for a year and twelve days after my brain injuries. I had surgery to correct my eyesight in 2015.

Earlier this month was my local United Way’s Spring Day of Caring. As usual, it was a good way to get out and distance myself from chronic pain issues. I received a free shirt and two sandwiches… I saved one sandwich for the following day.
Additionally, the coloring group at my local library this week helped me distance myself from pain issues.
